BOWIE – One day, many years from now, Nathaniel White of Bowie High School will be having a conversation with friends or family about his high school days. And when he does, White will most likely smile when discussing what he did as a senior wrestler at Bowie.
White had a perfect season this winter with Bowie. The 132-pounder won the Class 4A-3A state title last week and finished the season with an impressive 42-0 record, closing it out with a 3-2 decision over Isaiah Edmond of North Point in the championship match despite battling an injury in the closing seconds.
The only points White allowed in the final match were a pair of escapes. White remained in control throughout most of his matches this season.
“He did really well,” Bowie coach Aaron Hankey said. “He dominated everybody throughout the whole season.”
White did face a tough finish, though, injuring his ankle with 14 seconds left. Hankey said he simply gutted it out until time ran out, and White finished with the one-point victory.
